Advice to Transients on Dredging at Coquina Harbor, off SC AICW Statute Mile 346
A CRUISERS NET SPONSOR, Myrtle Beach Yacht Club occupies the northerly banks of Coquina Harbor; Coquina Harbor itself cuts into the northern banks of the Waterway, opposite marker #13. Our thanks to Roger Long for this information and advice referring to the upcoming dredging in Coquina Harbor scheduled to begin April 1.
I had a nice conversation with the Project Manager since we promised MBYC that we would return from New York and move our boat if necessary. Permitting is not yet complete. Earliest work could begin is two weeks but paperwork could delay that. Dredging will begin at the channel entrance and work back. Slips and marina fairways will be done after the channel is finished so not for a couple weeks after work begins. Don’t avoid inquiring about transient slips in this harbor because of this news item. It could be as much as a couple months before there is any significant disruption.
